In 2003, Ferrell gained movie stardom with the release of his hit holiday comedy, "Elf." He also starred in a slew of other popular comedies, including "Old School," "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" and "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby."

Ferrell changed pace when he starred opposite Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson in the 2006 drama "Stranger Than Fiction," which earned him a Golden Globe nomination.

Ferrell returns to film this summer in the adventure comedy "Land of the Lost," a big-screen remake of the 1970s TV series.
